The Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown x Alexandra Soveral
The French art of aromathérapie first began in the Golden Age of Parisian beauty in the early to mid 20th century and includes numerous health benefits for mind, body, and soul. Alexandra Soveral, founder of the London-based unique beauty brand SOVERAL, adapted this ancient art with modern day science by developing essential oils from a UK distillery that offers natural and responsibly farmed oils. The Four Seasons New York Downtown partnered with Soveral to develop the Aromatherapy Blend Bar and Bespoke Aromatherapy Experiences for their spa to incorporate these fabulous naturally created oils. Offering a completely bespoke experience for their clients.
“I have been practicing and perfecting the true art of aromatherapy for twenty years. Time and time again I’m astounded by its benefits to general health and wellbeing. And now, bringing it to New York and integrating it into treatments at The Spa at Four Seasons New York Downtown is a dream come true,” says Alexandra Soveral.
The Bespoke Aromatherapy Experience
As a guest at The Spa at the Four Seasons New York Downtown, after checking in at the beautiful front desk you immediately feel transferred into a new world. Leaving behind the hectic city streets, you find yourself in a new world of peace and serenity.
After enjoying The Spa’s beautiful amenities and waiting room, a specialist well versed in the Soveral essential oils works with you to determine your own bespoke blend. This blend is then used throughout the massage experience. An array of questions help you and the specialist determine what combination your body most needs and will react well to. What sort of things cause you stress, and pain. What your body or mind is currently lacking.
During the blending phase of the experience, you also have the opportunity to smell each of the nine essential oils from the in-Spa Aromatherapy Blend Bar to see how your body and mind react. The options of oils include; Wild Oman Frankincense, Madagascar Ylang Ylang, High Altitude French Lavender, Tuscany Bergamont, Italian Mandarin Zest, Wild White Patchouli, Blue Gum Eucalyptus, Nepaless Mountain Peppermint, and Roman Chamomile. The end result, a perfect combination of oils to improve your mind, body, and soul. The perfect addition to your massage! And a 15 ml bottle of your uniquely curated bespoke oil to bring the natural effects home with you.
This unique bespoke experience offers the most elite level of luxury!
Looking for your own bespoke oil blend without the full experience? No problem! Spa guests can have their own bespoke oil blended by a therapist to take home – 15 ml bottle for USD 65.
